Kick-off delayed due to positive coronavirus tests

The kick-off time between Huddersfield and Hull KR has been put back to 7:00pm following four positive coronavirus tests at the Giants.

The test results were received this morning, and required conversations with Public Health England and a thorough investigation of the situation to ensure the safety of all involved, leading to the decision to put back the kick-off from 5:30pm as originally scheduled.

None of the four positive tests involved players involved in last week’s fixture against Castleford. Two were for players in rehabilitation after injury, and the other two were for non-players who have not been in contact with the playing group.

The club are awaiting the result of the retest of one more player, who has been instructed to self-isolate until those results are received.

The four results are the only positive tests following the weekly Super League testing update.

  1. The game just cannot seem to its act together over the virus situation. Something must be out of sync somewhere plus the fact it’s not isolated but has affected so many clubs.
